safety coordinator. during national child passenger safety week, authorities are educating the parents on how to make their children safe and using the booster seat correctly. >> understand that the booster is designed to boost the child up. the vehicles were made for adults, and this booster seat will help this child set up. if your vehicle has head restraint, you can use a back lift car restraint. if your child's head is above the back of the sheet, then you want to use a high back booster seat. you want to test drive the
6:23am
booster seat before you use it. let your son or your daughter sit in the booster seat, take it out to your vehicle to make sure it fits your car. remember, maryland law requires a child to sit in a form of a federally approved seat. unless that are 4'9" or 60 pounds, they should be in the booster seat. >> the last tip is: when do you give up the booster? we are going to show you. ben is 7 years old, he gets in the car, and he moves all the way back, and his knees are sitting comfortably in the booster seat. if he puts the seat belt on without a booster seat you can see how it is going to rub his
